Probable lakes near Titan’s north pole (78 degrees north)

Probable lakes near Titan’s north pole (78 degrees north)
Probable lakes near Titan’s north pole (78 degrees north) Cassini's "T16" flyby on 22 July 2006 took it up to high latitudes near the north pole. RADAR images across the region contain numerous very dark splotches with sharp-edged boundaries, which may be the long-sought methane or ethane lakes on the surface of Titan. This image is centered near 78 degrees north, 18 degrees west measures about 475 kilometers by 150 kilometers (295 miles by 93 miles). NASA / JPL-Caltech
